Art Deco Moonstone & Sapphire Target Ring

$2,650.00


Description

DATE: Art Deco, c.1920

A mesmerising Art Deco period target ring set with moonstone and sapphire. The principal stone is a highly domed white moonstone displaying probably the strongest asterism (the effect whereby a hazy, shimmering light appears to pool inside the stone) I've ever seen. The moonstone rests within a thin halo of calibre cut sapphires bordered with fine platinum millegrain. It dates from the 1920s, crafted in 18 karat gold with elegant trifurcated shoulders.
